I recently spent some time visiting and exploring the Gardens of Absentia. I took quite a few pictures so decided to share this one. You can find a few more on my profile feed.
Ipunin Pera is the owner of the gardens and The Pool of Hope Charity in Second Life hosts many events there to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer.
When you explore the Gardens of Absentia you’ll notice little birdhouses near the pond, which serve as information kiosks for different cancers. You can click on them for more information, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, risk factors, and support. It’s very informative and a beautiful sim to explore. There is also a Breast Cancer Tribute Garden where you can light a tribute candle for a loved one.
Here are some links you may find useful:

Hope you get a chance to visit. <3
